Not brilliantly researched and not the best execution with lots of “ums” and minced words.
BUT the cases are very interesting and I do like how it seems you are amongst friends when listening.

Love these ladies

I can’t help but think 🤔 something is up, we are only getting about one proper episode a month, they are better than normal ones though and I love the better research and the donations but still ... maybe change the schedule and do less eps or do a series of eps and take breaks that’s totally ok ... but I think it’s time to address the 🐘 in the room

Karen, Georgia...
Would you mind pausing on the Hello Fresh offer for a bit? @hellofreshlondon (or whatever their handle is) is overwhelmed and missing deliveries. Their customer service is admitting as much.
Just for a bit. 😉
Love the podcast!

I loved this podcast when it started and I still love it now. I especially enjoy the longer ones when there’s a lot of chat before their stories. Thank you Karen & Georgia for many, many hours of great listening! X

Well it’s not quite the OG true crime podcast, but you can see why these infinitely likeable hosts have managed to grow so quickly in stature and influence. It’s warm, friendly and funny - with great research and plotting.

Really entertaining true crime!

I’ve been listening to MFM for a few years and it honestly hasn’t really dipped in quality the whole time, which is a real achievement considering how long it has been going and they post a couple of times a week! They did a lot of quilt episodes but I honestly didn’t mind. It was nice to listen back to some episodes because it has been so long since I first listening to them and the live shows were new for those of us who aren’t part of the fan cult.
My only qualm with this is that the preamble goes on for so long now. I don’t mind 10/15 minutes of chit chat before we get into the meat of a podcast but some episodes we have 45 minutes of chat, promoting other podcasts (which I get, they’re proud of them but I don’t need to know which episodes of other podcasts are out this week. I’m either subscribed to them already or I don’t want to listen to them. I came here for you guys!), it’s getting to be a bit much and for the first time I’ve started skipping the first half hour at least of these episodes.
Other than that I absolutely cannot recommend this podcast enough!

I found this podcast during the first couple of weeks of university, wherein I was living far away from home, in a brand new city where I knew no one. Needless to say, I felt homesick, isolated, and very lonely quite a lot of the time. But very quickly, after only a few episodes, the voices of Karen and Georgia became familiar and comforting, and listening to their witty, honest, and raw conversations felt like I was listening to two friends; friends who welcomed me into the community of true crime enthusiasts that I wasn’t really aware existed before. The tragic and macabre nature of the stories covered are handled with respect and empathy, and although it sometimes needs fact-checking, it’s clear that everything said comes from a genuine place of care and interest.
Aside from the true crime aspect, the frankness with which both hosts speak about mental health is so important and grounding for everyone affected in some way or another by similar experiences. The amount of laughter, intrigue, comfort, and strength I have found through being a fan of this podcast cannot be understated, and for that I am forever grateful to MFM.

It’s all just old content now

I stopped listening back in February 2021 after I realised that months had gone by and there were only a handful of original new episodes that weren’t quilt episodes (which reuse old live episodes) or short fan story episodes. I came back today to check in and see if maybe they had changed things up and might be addressing criticism about the lack of content I had seen on Reddit.... nope. They haven’t mentioned anything about the decrease in new content and they haven’t addressed disappointed fans. I thought I saw a new episode and started listening to it, got 20 minutes in (listening to them talking about their life’s and advertising their company and their friends shows) and noticed... oh. It’s just an new intro for an old live episode.
I’m pretty sad about this. It’s a shame they’re going down this way with such a lack of communication to fans. Bye MFM.

Used to be Great!

Not sure what is happening with this podcast. I have been a major fan since the beginning. Lately, it seems that they have been relying on past recordings and ‘quilt’ episodes disguised as new content. I miss their original stories. I hope this isn’t an example of getting too big too fast and forgetting how they got where they are. Disappointed lately!

Hope it’s just the same slump we are all in right now...

I’ve been a long term listener and a real fan, but I feel like something’s missing these days. It all just feels a bit flat and mechanical. It’s lost it’s passion and fun - feels way more serious and a lot less naughty than it used to. Hope K&G (who I love) can find their magic again.

A little over a year ago, right at the beginning of the pandemic, I didn't want to be left alone with my thoughts and anxiety in isolation, so I searched for podcasts to listen to. I've always been hugely fascinated with true crime, so I specifically searched for true crime podcasts, and My Favorite Murder was the first one that popped up. And I'm so glad it did! A true crime podcast hosted by two incredible women was more than I could ever have asked for, and I've been hooked ever since I pressed play on that first episode. I listen to Karen and Georgia anywhere and everywhere, and even when I'm doing the most mundane things like walking to and from university or doing the dishes, it feels like I'm part of an interesting conversation, and I couldn't imagine not having this podcast in my life. Thank you Karen and Georgia for bringing the community of murderinos together and also bringing so much joy as well as raising awareness of important things. If you're fascinated with true crime like me and are looking for a podcast to listen to, this one is for you, and you definitely don't want to miss it!

It looks lazy and sounds like you’re just reading from someone else’s research (which you are) without any passion. Is it really that time consuming to do your own research? If you’re too busy these days then I think you should probably wrap this up.

I love Karen Georgia and Steven. I obsessively listen on repeat and half the time it’s just because the atmosphere they create is so amazing that it’s weirdly become a comfort podcast as well as being so amazing and so informative about a subject I love. Thank you for making this and being there for every commute, every slow day at work, and any other time I need you.

This is my favourite podcast! Karen and Georgia are hilarious but also sensitive to difficult topics. They are so fantastic at storytelling and I genuinely listen to their episodes back to back for days at a time. Can’t wait to get tickers to see them live! Also I LOVE quilt episodes, love hearing the crowd in the background, defo release more of these pls!

Absolutely one the best podcasts around. Both Karen and Georgia have found a perfect balance for a tricky concept. Murder AND comedy? How is that right? Well just listen to these women doing their thing and you’ll see how it’s possible. Yes, they’re hilariously funny (and their opening dialogue is actually my favourite thing to listen to!) but they’re also sensitive and empathetic and respectful ALWAYS about the victims and survivors of such awful stories. I LOVE to see how successful they are (unfortunately others don’t but screw the haters) and I hope they continue for as long as they still love doing it! Love you K & G!

Loved this podcast so much but for the last year it has been incredibly boring and I finally had to unsubscribe after episode 269, what was that about? Georgia talked about spontaneous human combustion (yawn) and Karen recaps something she saw on tv, I’ve tried really hard to ride through the one story a week horrendously dragged and boring quilts out for this!!! I’m done and if I’m honest I’m truly sad to say goodbye but I’ll never get this time back so why am I putting myself through it? I can’t help but notice that their rating is slipping so I’m sure I’m not alone, bring back the true crime!

Love these people

I have listened to mfm for years now. And I love it. Karen and Georgia are funny honest and really care about how the world is. They donate regularly to important causes. If they did a podcast where they just talked about supermarket shopping I would listen. You get to learn about murder, and a range of other tooocs from best tv shows to self help. Would highly recommend

Loved it 5 years ago, love it now

I’ve been listening to Karen and Georgia for years and I adore them. There’s a bunch of people here who seem annoyed that 2 women who have been utterly transparent about their mental health and growth over the years are actually practising good mental health and adjusting their delivery during an incredibly difficult time. Almost like people don’t *actually* care about mental health.
There’s a review here about them “talking about their kids” which, spoiler alert, neither of them have. If you don’t enjoy Karen and Georgia chatting then go listen to one of the 7000 other true crime podcasts out there but what makes MFM special is these 2 women and their sense of humour. I hope I can listen to them for years to come, and I’m so grateful to them for keeping me company this last year.

Great podcast

This is the first podcast I have listened to and I started in the first Lockdown (March 2020). As someone who never understood the point of podcasts I was skeptical that I would continue listening. How wrong was I!
I am a fan of all things true crime (or a murderino as I now know it to be) and consider myself pretty knowledgeable about the subject. Georgia and Karen have given me so many new perspectives and bits of information about all different kinds of true crime stories. This podcast is now a staple for me and having fully caught up on all episodes o look forward to the release of both the mini and full episodes.
They broach each story with the utmost respect and are humble enough to add a corrections corner when something wasn’t quite right. I love the visibility and time they give to stories from minority groups and the support they show is unwavering.
Georgia and Karen also cover the much needed discussions around mental health and have made me realise so much about myself and my own mental health it’s unreal!
All I can say is if you are a true crime fanatic who wants to laugh, cry, be in awe, be inspired, be unapologetically you....this is the podcast for you. Thank you Georgia, Karen and STEVEN for all of the work you guys to to make this as brilliant as it is.

Like a few other murderinos, I don’t normally leave reviews, but today I was inspired to, after reading some of the recent negative reviews of MFM.
I’ve been listening to the podcast for about 3 years and I’ve listened to most episodes at least 3 times now!
Karen and Georgia have constantly delivered, bringing a rare and needed sense of humour to some of the worst topics imaginable. As most fellow murderinos will understand, humour helps when you’re actually terrified of being murdered yourself!
Regardless of what content they put out, I always feel like I have two old friends here with me, always inspiring me to keep going, no matter how terrible things get.
Personally I feel like people need to stop forcing their own expectations on Karen and Georgia. If it’s so easy to start and maintain a podcast for 5 years, why not go do it yourself? And if you don’t like the podcast any more, just stop listening, rather than sharing unnecessary negative reviews 🙃

I love this podcast

I’ve been listening since Jan 2020 and have now made my way through all the episodes. Now I can’t wait for Monday’s and Thursday’s for the new eps :) It’s got me through lockdown, half marathon training and a bad turn in my mental health. It’s been a friendly voice when I wanted to distract myself from bad thoughts. Can’t thank these ladies enough for all they do. I’m going to join the fan cult!!
Keep smashing it gals. ✨

I never take the time to review anything, so you know this must mean something.
I’ve been a big fan of MFM for a long time, and will continue to be. I enjoy the conversations before they get into the stories, the updates about their lives, and their own recommendations. It’s like catching up with friends.
I love that it’s free - hooray! We don’t have to pay anything for their time, energy or resource!
I love that the show has updated itself over the last year of chaos - talking politics, current events, and real-time news.
I love quilt episodes - I’ve never been able to get to a live show, so hearing stories not covered on the pod before (and hearing the audience cheering) is lovely.
Thank you to Karen, Georgia and the MFM team for continuing to put effort and work into weekly episodes, in whatever form they may be.
And to those complaining; this is FREE CONTENT. I get whining about something you pay for, but this is FREEEEE. Don’t like it? Find something else. It’s that simple.

This sounded like it was going to be so good - but 20 minutes into the episode, they were STILL batting about in-jokes between themselves, with absolutely no mention of the stories they were supposed to be covering! They weren’t even talking about crime. Felt like I was a 3rd wheel newcomer on a night out with two besties. I had no idea what they were talking about, and no effort was made to get the listeners interested or to explain. I don’t mind a little bit of that in a podcast, but that’s a full 20 minutes of my life I’ll never get back and I got absolutely nothing from it!

Good when they get to the point

So I listened to a couple of episodes a while ago and really enjoyed them. Came back to it recently and find myself skipping through 30+ minutes of the hosts talking about their children or tv shows they’re watching and not much murder. I’ve listened to 2 episodes today and struggled to find a murder to listen to. Sadly I’m not here to listen to you guys talking about your lives. This is meant to be a murder chat podcast 🤷🏻‍♀️

I have never left a review for a podcast before, but this morning after reading the recent negative reviews for MFM I felt I had to leave my thoughts. The ladies have been through everything the rest of us have been through this last year, life is tough right now and the fact that K & G are still showing up to entertain us week after week is amazing. I personally think some of the recent episodes have been among the best ever, especially the one about Eugene Bullard. The ladies have always posted live shows, the only problem right now is that those lives are old, because the world shut down. I for one am incredibly grateful to Karen & Georgia for keeping up the great podcasts week after week.

Goodbye for now

I used to love this and recommended it to so many people but it’s really sad to hear that they don’t want to do fresh stories for the listeners each week. It’s understandable that they are tired and the different format would have been ok for a month or so but now it’s just lots and lots of old and recycled content. As others have said, if you don’t want to read something that other people have researched then it may be time to take a break.

Time to stop?

Never thought I’d write this as I’ve loved this pod cast for so long but it’s gone downhill big time! I know times are tough but they don’t even do their own research anymore and they still can’t be bothered. Listened back to an early episode and the difference is crazy, the enthusiasm to make this podcast clearly just isn’t there anymore. Time to find something else to listen to!

The adverts are doing my head in.

I started at the most recent episodes and I’m working my way backwards to the start. There is a clearly a huge difference between now and then. Ladies we are in a pandemic, you need a break! Take one and we will all be here when you get back.
As for the adverts, dear god please get some new ones. I understand you need them but I find myself reciting the hello fresh ad in my sleep! To have up to 3 an episode is insane!!! Especially in a minisode

A pair of self righteous narcissistic LA snowflakes pretend that their morbid fascination with murder goes deeper than being just that and even claim to be advocating for victims.
Yawn.
I listened from the start and watched as they descended into the murky depths of politically correct pandering and gave up when the weekly virtue signal sections just got too much.
It would probably be a good podcast to study if you want to hear acts of cognitive dissonance being recorded in action.
Stay retarded and don’t get murdered!

I used to absolutely love this podcast but these days it feels like Karen and Georgia genuinely cannot be bothered. I get that times are rough but if you’re struggling to commit to making a full podcast once a week when you have staff doing your research and editing, all you have to do is talk for a few hours. Instead they’re talking for 40 minutes about show spoilers, reading one article about murder and then they’re done. They ignored fans when they asked them not to drop to one murder a week and created quilt episodes to further cut out their workload, and don’t get me started on their advice q and a episode... If the Exactly Right network is this much work then surely it’s time to put the podcast on hiatus. Every time I listen these days I found myself annoyed by K and G and it feels like a chore to listen. I’m sorry ladies but please take some time off and come back with your old energy.
